Brilliant! Wes Borg returned to blow the levels and Alex was a little too convincing. I'm enjoying these ensemble vids of late!

I lost it when Alex was trapped into playing the game. Good job :)

I actually lost it at Tim scoffing. I have no clue why.

Meta, as only LRR videos can be. I fully approve.

Wow, you took that 4th wall and really kicked its arse, didn't you?

My favourite moment, hands down: Graham and Paul's advertising executives about to embark on a spiritual journey of discovery.

Absolutely brilliant.

That was....trippy. Now I'm nervous in case somebody is watching me watch Tim watch Alex on the phone to Jer filming Tally and Ben watching Graham and Paul watch Wes advertising Fraudulent Pursuit, featuring James, Matt and Kathleen.

This was fantastic. :D

I too loved Graham and Paul's execs, but the whole thing was stellar, for me.

Also, I would totally play Fraudulent Persuits. It looks like a hilarious game.

The comedy nerd in me liked the video.

The math nerd in me was grated by Alex's mispronunciation of "Fermat" .

(Also the trivia nerd in me couldn't stop supplying the real answers..., also I think I would buy fraudulent pursuit and slip some of those cards in a real trivial pursuit game )

This is the first 'fouth wall breaking'/'meta' video you guys have done after a while, isn't it?

That was awesome, though FP must be such a hard game to win. Also, hate to be that guy, and I only mention this b/c it's not something I've noticed before, but there were a few problems with the image on the tv during Graham and Paul's scene. Other than that, ballin'.

I love how you guys don't so much 'break' the fourth wall, but rather obliterate it so much there may have never been a wall, or anything even mostly wall-like in that area.

Same here, and then I lost it again at the stinger. And really, that is a shining example of what a stinger should be.

Anyway, once again, LRR takes an old, tired idea and turns it into something beautiful. Fantastic.

I love it. Personally, I find Graham's sketchs funnier than the rest, I think it's just closer to my sense of humour than the others.

Also, only way this could have been funnier was if the stinger was someone dressed in an army uniform saying, "No, no, no. This is too silly now. We need less silliness here."

There was nothing about this that I did not love. This may be one of those videos I show other people to get them into LRR.

I loved the panning out persay of it. Strangly, it somehow made sense. And then Alex pulled off his part amazingly.
Nice job like ususal guys. ^_^

Whoa, what a ride! Awesome! I really enjoyed this! Even once we see the pattern we can never tell what's coming next. And yes, the very best was Tim watching the video at the end. Priceless!

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Eveny pull-back was brilliant, up to and including a pull-back to a LRR viewer scoffing after the final beep. I particularly liked the director, and the blatant lies. I didn't know Sir Edmund Hilary was the first person to scale Fermat's Last Theorem, but I'm willing to believe it if Alex says it.

Okay, I hate to potentially derail this thread, but I have to say something regarding the Twitter discussion / E thread.

Really, guys? Is this what you're doing instead of uploading DB3 videos? Why would either of you (Matt and Graham) waste you time by even reading the E thread, let alone taking precious minutes out of your day to respond to one retarded troll who wouldn't know class, humour, or acting ability from a hole in the ground? We, and you, all know that Matt is a really quite good actor, and even regarding that asshole's comment as worthy of the few bytes of your bandwidth it takes up is a stupid waste of time and energy all around. And yes, I am being a bit of a hypocrite, but I just had to say that. The guy is an E commenter; he doesn't fucking matter, so just ignore him.

Also, upon a re-watch, I really liked that mini tube TV in the 'director Jer' level.
